S10 region unlock

SOLVED
First Poster

I heard my relatives are bringing a galaxy s10 for me from saudi arabia

I know about the region lock. My question is, can the region lock still be unlocked for S10 with a 5min local call in KSA?

Any help is appreciated ☺

To remove a region lock a person must make a 5 to 10 minute call using a local sim card to a local number @Mayd 

 

However all is not lost if that can't happen as your local Samsung Customer Service Department may also be able to lift the region lock remotely.

Thanks for the confirmation.

Should i ask my relatives to take the phone to Samsung customer service in KSA to unlock the phone (so that i dont have to deal with it lol)?

Or will they not unlock it since it was 'locally' purchased?

You're very welcome for my reply @Mayd 

 

The region lock is removed as I've advised.

 

They'd do this remotely or use a local sim card as mentioned.
